Looking for Tisch Family in Demend, Hungary #hungary


Hi all,
I’ve had a substantial brick wall in my research for quite awhile now, and was wondering if anyone could could help me. I’m looking for the ancestors/relatives of Herman Tisch.
Herman/Ármin Tisch was born in Demend, Hont County, Austro-Hungary, on February 23, 1863. He was the son of Lajos/Lazar(Leyzer) Tisch(b. ? , d. Before 1895) and Mina Cohen/Kohn(b. ~1837, d. 09/16/1920). Herman had 3 known siblings, Mária Rosenfeld(b. ~1870, Tisch, d. ?), Arnold/Arnó Tisch(b. 04/15/1871, d. 03/15/1956), and Regina Szigeti(b. 11/15/1868, Tisch, d. 01/16/1938). 
Herman married Hermina Berger(b. 10/16/1874, Losce, Szepes County, Austro-Hungary, d. 02/10/1952) on 05/24/1896 in the city of Locse. 
Herman immigrated to the US(through Ellis Island) on 07/05/1902. He traveled under the name Hermann Fisch. After his arrival, he and Hermina settled in Manhattan.
The pair had three children, Emanuel Tisch(b. 04/22/1904, d. 03/02/1984), Leonard Tisch(b. 09/10/1907, d. 07/19/1994), and Frank Tisch(b. 09/16/1910, d. 07/24/1992). 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Aidan,

there is a extensive Tisch family tree on Geni (I have researched part of it). They were also from Demandice / Deménd.

The problem is that vital rec books from Sahy/Ipolysag rabbinate (covering also Demend records) are available starting from 1850 only, so you will not get beyond that point. Perhaps checking civil vital records 1895-1906 that are in the archive in Levice could get you some more information.
